.SH PURPOSE
STBRFS provides error bounds and backward error estimates for the
solution to a system of linear equations with a triangular band
coefficient matrix.
The solution matrix X must be computed by STBTRS or some other
means before entering this routine. STBRFS does not do iterative
refinement because doing so cannot improve the backward error.
.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 8
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1
= \(aqU\(aq: A is upper triangular;
.br
= \(aqL\(aq: A is lower triangular.
.TP 8
TRANS (input) CHARACTER*1
.br
Specifies the form of the system of equations:
.br
= \(aqN\(aq: A * X = B (No transpose)
.br
= \(aqT\(aq: A**T * X = B (Transpose)
.br
= \(aqC\(aq: A**H * X = B (Conjugate transpose = Transpose)
.TP 8
DIAG (input) CHARACTER*1
.br
= \(aqN\(aq: A is non-unit triangular;
.br
= \(aqU\(aq: A is unit triangular.
.TP 8
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
.TP 8
KD (input) INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals or subdiagonals of the
triangular band matrix A. KD >= 0.
.TP 8
NRHS (input) INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrices B and X. NRHS >= 0.
.TP 8
AB (input) REAL array, dimension (LDAB,N)
The upper or lower triangular band matrix A, stored in the
first kd+1 rows of the array. The j-th column of A is stored
in the j-th column of the array AB as follows:
if UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, AB(kd+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-kd)<=i<=j;
if UPLO = \(aqL\(aq, AB(1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kd).
If DIAG = \(aqU\(aq, the diagonal elements of A are not referenced
and are assumed to be 1.
.TP 8
LDAB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= KD+1.
.TP 8
B (input) REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
The right hand side matrix B.
.TP 8
LDB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).
.TP 8
X (input) REAL array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)
The solution matrix X.
.TP 8
LDX (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array X. LDX >= max(1,N).
.TP 8
FERR (output) REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
The estimated forward error bound for each solution vector
X(j) (the j-th column of the solution matrix X).
If XTRUE is the true solution corresponding to X(j), FERR(j)
is an estimated upper bound for the magnitude of the largest
element in (X(j) - XTRUE) divided by the magnitude of the
largest element in X(j). The estimate is as reliable as
the estimate for RCOND, and is almost always a slight
overestimate of the true error.
.TP 8
BERR (output) REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
The componentwise relative backward error of each solution
vector X(j) (i.e., the smallest relative change in
any element of A or B that makes X(j) an exact solution).
.TP 8
WORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (3*N)
.TP 8
IWORK (workspace) INTEGER array, dimension (N)
.TP 8
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
.br
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
